After looking at the tooling in Eclipse WTP it appears that it is exactly
what WDSc already has (for the most part) in respect to the Web Services


I will keep looking and let everyone know if I find anything.

Cool!  Thanks for the suggestion Pete. I haven't followed that project for
quite some time as I use MyEclipse IDE for most of my J2EE development.
Looks like I should take another peak at what WTP has to offer <doing the
update manager now>

In the meantime, if anyone else is in need of a easy to use, "raw" tool to
test your web services please check out this little program I wrote (open
source). Also, if anybody wants to add features to it that would be great!

I am using the web tools plugin for Eclipse. .  I also use the TCPMonitor for Axis.  
But then most of my web services are written in Java because there is no
Axis-like services interface for RPG programs (but I am thinking about
developing one).
